The XXL cabinet

In a statement yesterday, the PM announced that he had plans to reduce the size of the gargantuan cabinet that the executive arm of the state is labouring under. This upsized version of the cabinet contains an incredible 66 members! It is a tragedy of Greek proportions that we have a 66(!)-member strong cabinet, yet the governance is as bad as it could possibly be.

This cabinet is nothing but a drain on the ledger which Pakistan could not afford even before but can now afford even less given the tenuous nature of our economic condition. It is a positive move by the PM. He should definitely cut nay slash the cabinet and remove the excess baggage. Pakistans back is crumbling under the weight of that overload of corruption, negligence and ineptitude.
